Obama the Liberal Socialist? (not that there is anything wrong with American style socialism which has been part of the American Revolution since 1776..America has always been Socialist and Capitalist both..)
This is where the left is truly deluded. By misunderstanding Obama’s strategy and temperament and persistence, by grandstanding on one issue after another, by projecting unrealistic fantasies onto a candidate who never pledged a liberal revolution
Obama was not elected, despite liberal fantasies, to be a left-wing crusader. He was elected as a pragmatic, unifying reformist who would be more responsible than Bush. A pragmatic President governing with the best the left and the right has to offer...choosing the right combinations and in fact in many instances governing as a republican.
